I was going to comment on this earlier but I forgot.

Irregardless it is NOT the right of the government, whether it be local or federal, to take that right away.
I totally agree, but the cities of Chicago and San Francisco have somehow proven that local governments do have this power.

BTW, 'irregardless' is a double negative and not really a word.

Talk about Gun distribution...

Kinda hard to keep guns out of criminals hands when police officers are the entities supplying said weapons:

Indictment: Crooked deputies sold guns, drugs to public

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- A Virginia sheriff covered up a scheme in which a dozen of his deputies sold seized guns and drugs to the public, a federal indictment alleges.

The indictment names Henry County Sheriff Harold Franklin Cassell, known locally as "Frank," and 17 others.

They were taken into custody on Thursday morning, the Drug Enforcement Administration said in a statement.

"It is disgraceful corruption," said U.S. Attorney John L. Brownlee. (Watch how the good guys allegedly became bad guys -- 2:13 )

"These were drugs and guns that were seized as part of their law enforcement duties that were then stolen from the property room and put back out on the streets."

Brownlee added, "You have law enforcement (officers) risking their lives to take these guns off the streets and then a very few members of law enforcement putting them right back out there."

He acknowledged that the arrests would affect the department's ability to carry on day-to-day operations. Virginia state police are being sent to ensure safety, Brownlee said.

Among the schemes alleged in the indictment:


The theft of drugs and firearms in the custody of the sheriff's department


Distribution of cocaine, marijuana and a date rape drug


Money laundering


Obstruction of justice

The DEA said 13 of the 18 charged are either current or former employees of the Henry County Sheriff's Office, located in southern Virginia's Piedmont region.

Officials allege Cassell was advised by authorities of drug transactions going on in his department but took no action. Authorities also allege the sheriff covered up several illegal activities by lying to federal investigators.

Cassell was elected sheriff in 1992. The department employs 122 people, 96 of them as sworn law enforcement officers.

"Today's indictment serves as a clear reminder that no one -- not even a senior member of law enforcement -- is above the law," Brownlee said.
